It has been a very active day which I love as it always makes me feel fit:)

Exercise:

I met up with Dennis this morning for a bike ride. It was slightly more successful than the last time we rode bikes, but I am definitely not yet a good cyclist. I realized I am quite nervous turning, but I think that comes from the fact I went headfirst into a ravine as a teenager because I didn’t turn enough. I’ll just keep going and we’ll see if I ever improve🤣

I left tea with Dennis to meet up with my friend Emily for a socially distanced walk around Coquitlam River. It was awesome to catch up with her and being with her makes things fun and normal.

When I realized I only needed 10.55km to get to a nice round number, I knew I had to go out and try. I ended up going at 5pm which wasn’t the best as it’s been a super hot day, but I survived and lived to tell the tale. The run went fine though just before the end I had a rush of tingles through my right leg. I wonder what that is about?

Overall this month, I ran 20 times for a total of 126.36km. I worked out 14 times, did 4 yoga sessions and went on 3 bike rides for a total of 35.75km. I know that next month I really need to do more workouts and more yoga!

I will be giving an update on my run to Rapid City tomorrow.

Socializing:

I met up with another friend for a quick look at the bookstore and to get my gift card fixed. I of course, came home with more additions to my TBR, but no physical books. I think I’m just going to order the ones I want from the store online as they didn’t have them in person.

Knitting:

I have been working on my sweater today and kept thinking that it seemed big. Tonight I decided to take the time to put it on waste yarn and try it on. Well

This is how much extra I had. I’ve ripped it all out and think I’ll stick to the shawl for now as I may be starting a test knit.

Well I’m going to rest my weary body.

Have fun!

  1. Do you find it easier to keep fit during school days and those routines or during summer time off?
    I have to guess that we are either cycling or paddle boarding 4 of 7 days each week now. I’d prefer to paddle board, but the cycling is fine too.
    I have to admit gardening , digging, watering, pushing the mower, all make me drip with sweat, so that has to count too right AJ?

    1. I think everything where you move your body counts!
      I have been wanting to try stand up paddle boarding, but haven’t had the chance yet.
      That’s an interesting question and I think both work time and holidays have their pros and cons. During work time I have a routine which definitely helps, but during holidays it is much easier to get longer runs in

    1. Yup I was talking with my knitting buddy the other day about how much we would have knitted if we didn’t spend 3/4 of our time ripping out
